It is important to understand that by accepting your offer of accommodation, you are entering into a legally binding contract, and you are agreeing to pay the full occupancy period regardless of whether you occupy the accommodation for the full occupancy period and/or any part of it.
Remember your contract will start from the moment that you accept it and not from when you make a payment.
Once you have entered into the Agreement, you have a 7 working day ‘cooling off period’. This means that if within 7 working days of accepting the Agreement you change your mind and notify us by email of that fact, you will be released from the Agreement.
After this 7 working day cooling off period you will be liable to pay for the accommodation for the full occupancy period regardless of whether you occupy the accommodation.
You can only be released from the contract in exceptional circumstances such as taking a Leave of Absence or Withdrawing from the University.
It may be possible to transfer your licence to another student as long as the transfer is done with the knowledge and prior written approval of the University Student Accommodation Team. The new licensee should be a suitable replacement which means that the balance of genders and nationalities is not adversely affected within the accommodation.
